Songs: Stories About Songs – Hampton Fluffhead [BeauColburn]
This one moment—this one choice—didn’t just set the tone for that show, or that tour, but for the rest of the band’s career. And to be honest, it set the tone for how I would feel about them moving forward. This was the real deal. So this is how it’s gonna be huh? They were clearly serious and I would take them seriously.
Of all the shows, in all the years, this one song—these few seconds as the waves of excitement expanded through the crowd—stand above anything else I’ve ever experienced. If you could bottle the feeling in that room at that moment you could solve a lot of problems. Pure, pure bundles of joy.
